Default Does stock market volatility play a role in your hobby budget

It's been a bull run of a market for years now. How would a really down market affect your hobby budget?

Buy more? Buy less? Doesn't matter?

My card buying habits are largely dictated by my income. My income is largely dictated by how my business is going. That's dependent on the economy at large and my work/skill/luck. The stock market is only a part of the economy. The last stock market downturn was the residue of problems in the economy, not the cause of them. I think this is a true correction.

The recent losses just knocked out gains of the past nine weeks of a nine year bull market. I suspect people will survive.

Yes for me but only because I work in finance. I had a high bid on a card in a current auction and was just outbid literally right now. If we didn’t have this market vol I would have probably upped my bid. But in light of how the market may impact me and my bids in upcoming auctions, I’m bowing out from the card.

The fact that there was 10 coming of this (find) type in the mile high auction and the current bid also had to do with it. Just let it go......

Very small collector but Im technically a stockbroker/advisor and pullbacks have no effect on my budget (as meager as it is).
